BLUE MONDAY & HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY

Pink Saturday May 5, 2010. I'm having ISP problems and might not be able to get my post up today. My Sprint Wireless device broke and they are sending me a new one. If it gets here on time then I'll get my giveaway posted if not I won't be announcing the giveaway winner until next Saturday. So sorry! Have a great weekend and I'll be visiting Pink Saturday Bloggers as soon as I'm up and running again.

Blessings to ya, Shirl

Hello and welcome to Blue Monday hosted by Sally of Smiling Sally. Thank you Sally for hosting this fun event. Now that school is almost out (just four more days) I will be able to post again on Monday's. I've missed all of you and I'm looking forward to visiting with you again.

Today I am combining a blue post and a Memorial Day Post.

Memorial Day is a day to honor the memories of the armed forces members who never made it to veteran status because they were killed fighting for their country in wars, police actions, peace-keeping missions or terrist attacks. I thank them all and send blessings to their families left behind.

I do have to take this special day to Honor my son Bob and all the other troops for their service to our country and to let them know how appreciated they are.

Thanking a Veteran for their service is always appreciated and can never be said enough.
Thank you Bob we love you, miss you and are so proud of you!



The little picture of the bride is my daughter Jen and her brother Bob. She was pinning on his boutonniere. So many years ago.

I am having a giveaway on my previous post (200th), if you go here or scroll down to previous post you can enter the drawing for a pretty little felt bunny embroidered with silk.

Thank you so much for stopping by, it was so nice to visit with you!
Have a wonderful Memorial Day!
Blessings to ya, Shirl

So sorry you're having computer issues. They can be so frustrating.

I'm new to your blog and LOVE your header. I was trying to figure out which piece I find so intriguing. I think it's the hand embroidered basket, but it's probably the collection as a whole that makes it so special.

I'm starting a new weekly meme "Summer Sundays". It's all about what summer means to YOU! I think it will be interesting to see what everyone comes up with. Hope you can join us.
